The early 1960s saw American automakers building some very special and very limited editions of production models that appeared to be stock, but were hiding some tricks to make them race-ready. This 1962 Chevrolet Impala Z11 is just such a car. A factory-built lightweight racer, this car features a high-performance 409 engine and aluminum body panels to reduce weight. The restoration was deb...
The Muscle Car and Corvette Nationals is a celebration of stock and original cars, but nobody can deny that the vast majority of Muscle Cars were modified by their owners to go faster or look unique.

We all dig Hot Wheels cars, and Sean Svendsen builds cusom versions that go to a whole new level of cool. He strips the cars, polishes the bodies, sprays them with Spectraflame transluceant paint for a vintage look, re-tires them with reproduction redlines, and the results are awesome. These are just some of the cars he's done, and you can see his other creations, including model kits and artwork, at his website www.svensworldofwheels.com. We'd love to build some full-size versions of these at the V8 Speed & Resto Shop. Which is your favorite?

Throw in the trivia question, some project stories, and a few laughs and you've got another super-thrilling episode of V8 Radio!
